Tasting notes

The 2020 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a very intense bouquet with dark cherries, iodine, violet petals and light graphite scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied opening, but there is a fine bead of acidity here, blood orange infusing the dark plummy fruit towards the finish that has a slightly granular texture. It is a little difficult to see how this will mature but I believe it is on the right track.
